A five-episode documentary series entitled Asian Americans has been released in the United States, with its first two episodes premiering on the Public Broadcasting Service on Monday.

Led by a team of Asian American filmmakers, the series examines the significant role of Asian Americans in shaping US history and identity, from Chinese rail workers’ long-forgotten contribution in the 1850s to modern refugee crises in a globally connected world.

Chu, the first Chinese American woman elected to US Congress, adds: “There’s no better time to reflect on the history of contributions of the AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) community.

The premiere is also a part of the films and performances program of San Francisco’s Asia-Pacific American Heritage Month.

May has been celebrated as APA Heritage Month for the past 15 years in San Francisco.
